Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone Limited (popularly known as AMTZ) is an enterprise under the Government of Andhra Pradesh, a 270 Acre zone, dedicated for Medical Device Manufacturing. The objective behind this ‘One-Stop- Solution’ is not only to reduce the cost of manufacturing up to 40% or to just simplify the end-to- end operations but also to reduce the import dependency, which is presently around 75%. AMTZ envisions to put India on the global map of high end medical equipment production and make health care products affordable and accessible not only for India but for world at large.
The creation of such a zone is based on the fact that medical devices manufacturing requires certain high investment facilities which are too capital intensive for individual manufactures to invest upon.The zone with in-house high investment scientific facilities would help manufacturers reduce the cost of manufacturing by more than 40%-50%. Currently, due to lack of such centrally located sharable facilities, either manufacturers do not undertake production of technologies requiring them or send their products abroad for process up-gradation and value addition. While the zone would have all such facilities in-house to reduce manufacturing process costs, it would be in an area which is well connected with Railways, Roadways, Waterways and Airways with near presence of Industrial Corridors, and Port to reduce logistical costs.

The Association of National Board Accredited Institutions (ANBAI) was started in response to the decision of the National Board of Examinations (NBE) to take over admissions to medical courses in India. Thereafter it was decided that having an association of DNB (Diplomate of National Board) accredited institutions would greatly help in addressing problems faced by teaching hospitals and students. ANBAI was formally registered at the Registrar of Societies in January 2011.
Currently ANBAI is a body of about 490 NBE Institutions. This association was born with the aim to unite the National Board Accredited Institutions to catalyse their energies toward developing better teaching program and to present a credible and united front to solve problems together. The main focus of this association is to improve the camaraderie and the partnership between the National Board Accredited Institutions in working towards excellence. The association is also a forum to encourage innovative ideas in Post Graduate Medical teaching and hence enhance the standards of our students to International level.
